Hello Yanni, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Covid 19 infection is indeed currently a hot topic of discussion everywhere. This infection itself originally came from China, which then spread so quickly to other countries. The spread of this virus is thought to be due to droplets / saliva splashes of sufferers. This is what causes the virus to spread very easily between humans.
Responding to your question, you have felt the complaint for 1 month of dry cough, shortness of breath that was lost and now arises again can occur because you have a prolonged respiratory infection, or you are exposed to new infections, I think you now need to isolate yourself first first at home if the complaint feels mild, but if your complaint feels heavy you can visit the nearest hospital. This does not mean that you are infected with covid-19, but because exposure to covid 19 infection itself is difficult to detect, at least you reduce the risk of transmitting or infecting others given your current immunity. Go to the hospital immediately if your situation gets worse. But there are several other possible diseases that occur to you:
To confirm some of the above diseases you can visit a general practitioner directly to confirm. If you need specialist treatment, you will be referred to a pulmonary specialist, to treat your illness. At this time all you can do is:
Close your mouth using a mask, or if you don't have a mask you can use a handkerchief, or a clean cloth to temporarily close your mouth, or learn the ethics of a good and correct cough.
Do self-isolating, or not leave the house for a while, at least until your complaints improve, especially if you live in a region that has been exposed to covid-19 infection in Indonesia, or you have been traveling before leaving the city.
Avoid the crowd.
Wash your hands before and after activities, especially when you want to eat.
Enough rest to enhance your immunity.
Eat nutritious foods to increase immunity.
That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
